Seth Rudetsky, Deconstructing Broadway

Presented in partnership with KMFA-FM’s Icons of Broadway

This performance supported in part by the Topfer Endowment for Performing Arts Production.

Sirius/XM radio's Broadway host Seth Rudetsky is bringing his hilarious one-man show to the McCullough stage for two performances. Deconstructing Broadway is described as a combination of America’s Funniest Home Videos and The Daily Show. Rudetsky uses his audio/video collection to break down performances from beloved Broadway divas (Patti LuPone, Betty Buckley) as well as showcase mind-boggling videos like The Osmonds singing a medley from Fiddler on the Roof or Cher performing all of West Side Story. This award-winning show has played to sold-out crowds in the U.S. and in London, where it received 5-star reviews and was referred to as "nothing short of brilliant!"

Deconstructing Broadway is appealing to both musical-theater geeks and novices alike… it’s also a hell of a lot of fun
